themselves. >> rich, not just a meteorologist. now i think rich can also be known as a hero. look what he found. >> hey, buddy. hey buddy. are you okay? >> do you hear that? he was out looking at some of the damage, heard the meows of a cat, actually a kitten, and, of course rich was going to spring into action and he goes in and rescues this poor kitten. >> oh, that is heartbreaking. i hate to see this. >> but, rich is there and thank goodness he was, and that he did hear the sounds because he -- you can hear in his voice in the video is kind and gentle and helped this cat. >> are you okay? i'm going to get you something. >> wrapped the cat in a jacket and warmed the cat up in the live truck, the whio live truck so that the cat could be safe. we'll find out exactly what's going on with this little kitten because we have rich wirdzek via
skype right this minute. the first question on everybody's minds, where's the kitten? where is the cat now? >> the kitten is with the family. we called the family and they were able to come up and grab the kitten. >> is the cat still in the area that the family's home once was? >> yeah. i found the cat exactly where the house was. they have a lot of rebuilding to do but they're going to be holding on to the kitten. one glimmer of hope that came out of such a tragic situation. >> were the cat's cries drew you to that section or were you walking around and the cat heard you? >> i think the kitten might have heard me. at first i thought it was a bird. it sounded different. i had my phone on me. i turned it on. wasn't sure what i was going to find at first. i walked up and the kitten was right there. >> how does it feel to be a hero? >> i don't think you can call me a hero. i was in the right place in the right time. usually i am in the studio giving the weather. >> tell us details about the tornado that touched down. >> rated ef-3 on the damage
scale of ef-0 to ef-5. it was the kitten's size being so small that allowed it to vive. we had rain on and off for about 14 hours after the tornado so, you know, not only was everything thrown around but everything got soaked. the family had the best attitude of anyone i've ever seen go through something like that. >> well thank you for all that you've been doing for the folks in ohio. >> i'm glad i could help out in some little way. people have all sorts of hobbies out there and for whatever reason this is a hobby of some. the burnout. you got your car in the parking lot, rvs and all your buddies are around and revving up your engines. this is in sochi. i did say this was a burnout. it turns to be quite literally into a burnout because right here, the entire car burns out. >> those sparks thought a fire. who would have thunk that would have happened?
>> out the driver because he bails from his car, but watch this, go back. i think i forget my jacket. >> at least looks like they're prepared. they seem to have fire extinguishers. maybe they thought this was a possibility. now another russian video is asphalt season for the tvg racing team. see this fella on the track tearing it up. all is well. st. petersburg, russia. until -- >> oh. >> yeah. he bales quickly. keep your eyes where there would be a passenger's feet in the passenger side. watch this. there's like a big shot of flames down there too. you can see this is bad. the whole hood. everything under the hood on fire. you can see these guys also have the extinguishers close by. they're able to get those on the fire as soon as possible. the guy's car is quite literally
toast. good news believe it or not the car suffered little damage. the guy was able to hop into another car and continue the race and finish, but not before he comes back in the burnt car to, you guessed it, get the camera. this is the kind of video that's going to make you sick to your stomach. check out what this woman is doing. that's angela brown. she is supposed to be the carrier of 90-year-old ruth darling. instead what she does is go through ruth's wallet and purse and take money from her in this video we actually see her looking through some of her stuff, multiple times. according to reports, she stole as much as $890 that they know of for sure. they also say about $10,000 are missing from ruth's bank account. >> oh. and they're paying this woman. here she is exploiting the whole thing. >> they ended up finding out
about this because their house cleaner victoria williams, saw her at the grocery store loading up her shopping cart with very expensive wine. she got suspicious wondering where is she getting all that money from. she decided to plant this camera with the permission of the family in a pen. she put a pen that was actually a camera, recorded all of this, confirming their suspicions, in fact, she was stealing from ruth. >> that's so fantastic. your house cleaner. you have one person who's working in your home that you can't trust and another person who's working in your home who's like the epitome of honest. >> fortunately she is now being cared for properly and brownson was sentenced to 48 weeks in jail. >> that's not enough. all right. we're celebrating the end of the week with a little rtm ipad mini giveaway. >> to enter you need the buzzword and a twitter account.

it hit. but it doesn't stop here. it keeps going. another part of the bridge comes and hits that bridge that was hit by the first one. >> what are the people doing on that bridge? >> yeah. they need to get out of there. >> part of the reason they're probably still there, is that many roads were closed and no way to get out. >> it's amazing to see this because it gives you an idea of how strong the power behind this water is. >> a professor drops a beat. >> to the tune of snoop dogg. ♪ with my mind on >> hear his pre-final exam rap to take the edge off. >> snoop would be impressed. >> a surfer hoping to -- >> reinvent the way you hit the ways.
